Scans

Long Description:

"In looking back over the titles of a few recently released pictures one finds "Underworld", "Synthetic Sin", "Sin Daughter", "Lady of the Pavements", "Dancing Daughters", and "Three Week Ends". These pictures, while different in story material and of a varying grade in entertainment value, may, by their titles alone, give the producers a hint as to why one hears, now and then, a wild cry for censorship ... If the bogey of censorship, which is causing no end of worry among the producers and exhibitors, were killed at the source, in the studios, the call for censorship and the need for censorship would naturally vanish."
